The laws, regulations, and processes related to Social Security Disability benefits are complex and confusing to many applicants. Learning how these processes work can help individuals achieve their maximum benefit potential.

One way to achieve this is by utilizing Social Security Disability Educational Resources, such as a series of webinars that are hosted by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The next course will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 26, and will cover the incentives that are free to those who participate in the SSA’s Ticket To Work program. Other upcoming courses will discuss how to receive benefit verification online and how to file an appeal of a decision.

To participate, just go to the SSA’s webinars page and click the button to register. From there, fill out the information that is needed and you will be contacted about how to sign into the event. Any questions regarding the registration process can be directed to support via email.

The Social Security Disability Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin point out that after attending a webinar, a participant may still have specific questions regarding their benefits claim. If that is the case, the team of attorneys encourages those individuals to contact the firm to discuss their legal rights and options.

For an individual who is disabled, obtaining the information that is needed to properly file a claim for Social Security disability can be one of the most difficult aspects of the application process. The Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain there may be a resource for this vital information available at the touch of a button though.

The website, Disability.gov, is the federal government’s answer to providing access to crucial data, resources, services, and information for the disabled. Furthermore, the site provides users with several guides that can help break down certain topics that are important to the disabled, as well as their families and caregivers.

Some of the topics that are covered under these guides include what qualifies a disabled person for benefits, as well as where and how to receive job training and housing assistance.

The site is currently promoting a tutorial on how to get started on the Social Security disability benefits application process.

The attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin are aware of how difficult it can be for the disabled to find reliable Social Security Disability Resources. That is why the firm is here to offer assistance to anyone considering applying for such benefits or who have had a claim denied in the past.
